In the latest LA Galaxy injury report update, it's mostly about who's still on the list: David Beckham. Landon Donovan and David Junior Lopes have come off the injury report. Donovan is not much of a surprise, given that he went ninety minutes against Toronto. With a full week to recover, Donovan should be a ninety minutes match fitness for the near future.
David Junior Lopes is a bit more of a surprise, as his stock has really fallen off the map. He hasn't been selected in an 18 while listed as questionable, so coming off the list probably won't have much of an effect on the match day roster. He was a somewhat serviceable center back when Omar Gonzalez was recovering, but the Galaxy have reached a very solid point with their back line.
Still listed as questionable is David Beckham with a left ankle sprain, although LA Galaxy Inisider Adam Serrano reported yesterday that Beckham was back at full practice for the first time since September 1st. Given the complications that travel can cause, I wouldn't be surprised to see Beckham sit out the trip to Colorado, so he can be at full health for the difficult run in October. Serrano noted in his report that Arena called Beckham's status "day to day".
Beckham's availability will be the main story of the week, as the Galaxy are nearing something unheard of this year; a team at full health. Perfect timing, considering the MLS season is coming to its thrilling conclusion.
